Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Secretary Mohan de Silva expects to stage a “great” Lanka Premier League (LPL). The five-team franchise league is now slated to begin 17 days from now, on 26 November at a specially created ‘bio-secure bubble’ centring the Hambantota Mahinda Rajapaksa Stadium.
“We hope to have a great tournament. We have to be positive and move forward. There are many parties who are waiting until things go wrong and criticise us. But we are not feared,” he told ‘The Morning Sports’ yesterday (8).
